meet the artist

Ever wondered who is creating all these beautiful stories? Well, let us introduce you to our sand artist, Harm van Schaik.

He started a few years ago with drawing the first scenes in sand on a piece of wood, trying to tell the story of creation in a new way. Now, after millions of views of the Sandy Tales videos, he is still telling all kind of different Bible stories.

When he’s drawing one scene he often changes something in the picture and the whole scene is transforming on your screen to something brand new. Every time you see it, you will be amazed. And touched.
